About Entrepreneur Empowerment Institute

Tom Matzen, Martin Barnes and Frank Bria.

Our mission is to reverse the failure rate of small business across the globe. Today, according to the US Small Business Administration, two out of three small businesses fail in the first six years. We think that’s unacceptable, and are committed to helping reverse that sad reality.

How To Start, Build & Scale The Business Of Your Dreams

Announcing the Global Entrepreneur Summit 2017

If you have a burning desire to do good in the world, relentlessly pursue your passions, and make a ton of money…
you’re in the right place because…

We have brought together 32 of the world’s most impact-focused, street-smart entrepreneurs and thought leaders, and asked each of them to dive deep into their personal success strategy that allows them to have the business and life of their dreams… so you can do it too!

So appreciative of the 1875 people that joined us from 26 countries across the globe, learning from the thirty-two Master Classes presented on a range of topics designed to help entrepreneurs start, build and scale the business of their dreams.

This Summit has ended, but lifetime access to the trainings are available, click on the button below.

The Game We Are Playing

Our Focus for 2018


To provide education courses that equip aspiring and existing entrepreneurs with the business skills and insights, tools, resources, and networks to start and grow successful businesses.


To advocate federal, state and local governments to support entrepreneurs and encourage accessible means of raising capital for entrepreneurs to grow and expand.


To empower entrepreneurs to manage their finances to build long-term success and impact.

Other Important Goals

We also want to work with entrepreneurs that have character but lack the capital to grow and expand their businesses, to build outreach programs to educate and inspire others about the positive contributions entrepreneurs make to their local communities, and to inspire and motivate entrepreneurs to “do good” locally and globally in all they do.
